We are investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating synaptic transmission and the way these determine the processing of information by neural circuits. The circuits we are concentrating are involved in vision, and include the retina and visual cortex.  The question that guides our research is “how do neuronal synapses extract and transfer the information in a visual stimulus?”.
